Late Harvest Shahpar
2017 Signature Viognier, Napa Valley
Fragrant, alluring and exotic, Viognier is a rarity in Napa Valley. Darioush Signature Viognier expresses its inherently bright and vibrant character when grown from the cooler locales of Oak Knoll and Los Carneros where dense early morning fog and late afternoon breezes allow this delicate variety to ripen slowly and completely. The hallmark of Signature Viognier is its effusive floral aromatics and core of juicy stone fruit.
“Smooth and seamless, packing in plenty of intensity without any weight.”-Wine Spectator, on the 2016 vintage | Rated 90
Lending remarkable consistency with prior vintages, 2017 Signature Viognier maintains beautiful, fresh floral notes of apple blossom and acacia. The wine’s charm lies in its unique and exotic interplay of texture and flavors— seamlessly bridging vibrant citrus and stone fruits with delicate spice. Juicy saturn peach and apricot flavors take center stage, finishing with lively kumquat and persistent minerality.
